Aloha!

I'm right in the middle of a painting frenzy this first week of July 2012 and it feels righteous! Two art galleries have called me in to participate in their shindigs so I'm so very honored & grateful to be allowed through the front door (no begging at the back-door...hum that smells of kink) with billing along side the masters too, wow whoopie holy-crap whoa f'reals.

So, with all that in mind, I have done a couple very loose paintings over the past few days to limber up and get creative juices flowing. You may consider them quick studies of color and composition.

First up is not a poly-pop subject but one dear to me, a portrait study of one of L.A.'s great rock and roll poet and performing icons - taken from a clip off of American Bandstand:



"Tribute to Arthur Lee"
Acrylics on 11" x 14" canvas panel.
July 1, 2012.

Second up is a poly-pop subject that was influenced by the question "what makes YOUR tiki happy?" So I'm wracking my brain trying to come up with a clever mind-image free of sexual innuendo (art-gallery request) and I just begin to think "what if tiki himself doesn't know?" or "do I paint a tiki psyche based on superficial or spiritual ideals?" Then I began to think of those souls who do not stop and smell the roses along the way, those who do not see beauty at all, those who fail to step out into the light but decide to cower in darkness...taking brush in-hand, this painting emerged off the easel as easy as drinking a Mai Tai:



"Won't You Come Out To Play?"
Acrylics on 11" x 14" canvas panel.
July 5, 2012.

- not exactly what I'll produce for the art show but it does capture a sub-conscious mood I was going for.

Hope you enjoy these two, I'm curious to read what you think - all the while I'll be at the easel working on more creations. Enjoy and I'll post more in a couple days. Mahalo and Cheers! G

Kinda feel the feeling of pity for the lil' tiki there in the cave. A beautiful place, but nobody to play with in the sand, sun, and the ocean blue. Very cool G! Definitely has depth...

Aloha! Here is my submission for the "What Makes Your Tiki Hapi?" group exhibition at the Elroy Artspace gallery in Portland, Oregon next month - much more in-line with what I wanted to convey in a painting. Allow me to unveil:



"Happy at Lenape"
Acrylics on 16" x 20" canvas panel.
July 1. 2012.

Lenape was the site of an amusement park in Pennsylvania that featured an classic old wooden roller-coaster. Like so many American treasures, this ride closed in 1980 and was bulldozed into oblivion shortly thereafter.

note: tiki figures are riding the coaster - kinda hard to tell in the photo - Hapi Tiki in front seat along with Moai heads etc.

Hope you dig it! Any comments greatly appreciated. Mahalo! G

This is so cool. I love those wooden roller coasters and your painting captures the beauty and fun really well. I could see Hapi up front. Wendy

Wow! Its been a while and I'm back!!
I've just finished my latest painting. I'm returning to a tiki-theme once again to celebrate the warmth of summer albeit sun baked in the Inland Empire...I layered this one up good - plenty of hidden spirits to catch your eye and keep you amused. Enjoy!



"The Van Sickle Trio"
Acrylics on 16 x 20 stretched canvas
June 16-30, 2014

Available for purchase - PM me if interested. Thanks, TikiG
